Can you believe it? It’s that time of year again, already. Early January, besides being when people decide that all of those resolutions should finally be abandoned, houses a consumer electronics conference known simply as CES. This is when the companies pull out the big guns, announcing their line of products for the rest of 2015 and beyond. Of course, wearable technology has a big place at...

We all want to remain healthy but, to be honest, most of us don’t know exactly how to do that. Sure, there are some vague ideas about ‘not eating bacon’ and ‘refraining from sitting on the couch all day’ floating around our heads but is that enough? The air of mystery surrounding our health has given birth to an entire genre of wearable technology, that...

The neck is a mysterious beast. It connects our head to the rest of our body. It also, on occasion, cranes to check out a beautiful slice of pizza in a nearby storefront. What can I say? It’s useful. We need to take care of it. The saying ‘protect ya neck’ didn’t exist in a vacuum, after all. On that note, there is an embarrassingly slim amount...

Getting older sucks. There are no two ways about it. The things you thought were rock solid about life, like the ability to be able to traverse solid rocks, are no longer etched in stone. Your legs start to give and you realize that your walking and running gait better resembles a lobster in mid-trot than a human being. What can be done to prevent this rapid deterioration,...

The problem with most wearable technology? They don’t make clear designations as to which sex they are intended to be worn by. Anyone can wear Google Glass. Ditto for Oculus Rift and just about every smartwatch and fitness monitor out there on store shelves. How are we to know which ones our chromosomal compliment urges us to buy?! This is a confusing time...

Underwear is great. Underwear is good. Underwear helps protect our nether-regions from scorpions and other malfeasants. Of course, even though each of us wears underwear each and every day, these garments have been auspiciously absent from the ongoing high tech revolution. Why should they be left high and dry with nary an Arduino sensor to call their friend? It doesn’t...

Timex is one of the oldest names in watches. As a matter of fact, that name is so iconic that they area always synonymous with the dang things. They’ve been making quality timepieces for as long as quality timepieces have been a thing so it is a little surprising to note that they haven’t jumped in on the smartwatch craze yet. We all know that this is...

Earrings, usually meant for ladies or your one cool guidance counselor, have been auspiciously absent from the wearable technology boom. Why not, one wonders? They are already usually made out of some kind of metal, which makes it the perfect foil for microchips and all of that jazz. Of course, this is not entirely true. Some tech artists out there have begun using the humble earring as their playground....

Walking. It’s something even the laziest among us do each and every day. We have to, at the very least, walk to and from the fridge during mammoth Netflix sessions. However, walking is frustratingly easy to do incorrectly. Too much incorrect walking and you’ll end up hobbled and afraid, cursing to the heavens your knee and back pain. How can we be sure if we are walking correctly, however?...

The world of smartwatches is a huge and varied one. However, it is a relatively new sub-section of the wearables industry and, thus, does experience its own share of growing pains. One of the biggest complaints lobbed at the smartwatch industry is that they aren’t made to look like high end watches, settling on plastic looking thingamabobbies instead. There have been some in-roads on this front....
